How about 7.8 million incentives? Gettlemen may have a CB in mind come draft or FA and Gamble has been injured quite a bit as of lately.

I'm not arguing he's not a good player or that it wouldn't create a hole, I'm just speculating on a possibility of why he could be taking so long when we all thought that would be one of the first cuts.



Like I said, we can clear some money elsewhere without cutting him. My speculation on why it is taking so long is because he isn't going anywhere.

And yes, I hope Gettlemen does address CB in the draft or FA too. I doubt the FO thinks it is a good idea to go into a season with our CBs being Dockery, Thomas, and some mid-low level FA.

I don't think they are necessarily planning on keeping Gamble. If they keep him till after March 12th they can shop him. If we got something crazy like a third for him that would be a world of difference than just cutting him.

I don't think he makes the roster come kickoff.


but what do you know?

No brainer here. Cutting an often injured 34 year old DT and saving 2.5 mil was a easy decision.

Ron wasn't bad, but "wasn't bad" ain't what we are looking for.

Played well when he was in, but couldn't play enough to justify the pay. Who am I referring to - Ron Edwards, Chris Gamble, Jon Beason...?

Bottom line is you can't pay Gamble $8mil per year to play in 7-8 games, then go on IR. Same with Beason, but the ridiculous contract handicaps Gettleman right now. Otherwise, Beason would be a casualty as well.
